Oh lookie! The White City has an Amazon listing!

For centuries, the White City has graced the banks of the Moskva River. But in the early years of a twentieth century not quite analogous to our own, a creature even more ancient than Moscow's fortress heart has entered its medieval walls.

In the wake of political success and personal loss, the immortal detective Don Sebastien de Ulloa has come to Moscow to choose his path amid the embers of war between England and her American colonies. Accompanied by his court--the forensic sorcerer Lady Abigail Irene and the authoress Phoebe Smith--he seeks nothing but healing and rest.

But Moscow is both jeweled and corrupt, and when you are old there is no place free of ghosts, and Sebastien is far from the most ancient thing in Russia...
I can't guarantee that that publishing date is accurate, and given how fast these small press runs sell out, I may suggest pre-ordering from the publisher. (There are also a few copies of Bone and Jewel Creatures left: this is probably the only place you will reliably still get one.)

Also, word is that this one, too, will have gorgeous unsettling Patrick Arrasmith cover art, such as that which graced the first two.


Gah. Want to pre-order. Have no book budget until August, and maybe not then, depending on what the car needs.

(I do have Bone and Jewel Creatures, though. Everyone who doesn't? Buy it now, while there are a few left!)
You might have an in with the author. ;-)
I just pre-ordered mine. Now to remember I have ordered it, and not order a second copy later.
I almost did that, but before submitting the order I thought to check my email for the order acknowledgment, already received. :)

I've done that too; I double checked the other day to make sure the pre-order wasn't already done, and then managed to pre-order two copies of Cherie Priest's new one when I ordered White City.
I loved New Amsterdam and am about to start reading Seven for a Secret. Hmmm... depending on my personal cash flow, I may have to pre-order White City.
I hope you like 7faS too...
Just read 7faS today... loved it! I will review it on my blog after I've reread it.
Sounds good!
I just wanted to say I'm in love with Bone & Jewel Creatures. I'm now on my third reading, still trying to figure out how to write about it in depth. But with that book I can see how far you've leveled up as a writer since the Jenny Casey novels (which I enjoyed greatly).
Thank you so much. And yes, I think I've learned a lot in the last decade....
